there. now, paula broadwell started e-mailing jill kelley. and from what we know, some of those e-mails basically took the tone of, you know, stay away from david petraeus, sort of, i know sort of your relationship with some of these other generals, it's inappropriate. at the time it didn't make sense. because what we've been told is, david petraeus and jill kelley are family friends. that david petraeus and his wife holly have spent time with jill kelley and her husband. that there was no romantic involvement between petraeus and kelley. but apparently, broadwell may have thought so. and so, started this whole e-mail chain because of what she may have believed, which now has spiraled to include not only petraeus, but general john allen. i know that's a lot. but it is hard to sort of piece all of this together. but that's what we believe right now, soledad. >> well, that is very bizarre. all right, thank you for updating us. we certainly appreciate it. chris lawrence for us at the pentagon this morning. let's get to retired general james "spider" marks. we were talking to him yest

"wall street journal" is reporting that the fbi agent who launched the petraeus investigation himself is under investigation. in part because he sent shirtless pictures of himself to jill kelley. jill kelley, the woman who kicked off all of this investigation, by complaining about the e-mails that she was getting from the petraeus mistress. so the agent, who knew kelley, allegedly sent those pictures before any investigation began, but as you can see, the story is getting much more complicated. we've got team coverage of the breaking news this morning. chris lawrence is at the pentagon. chris, i don't even know where to begin because there's so much to talk about. let's start with general allen. what's the implications of this -- of him being brought in to petraeus scandal and what has he said about it? >> so far, from what we've heard from d
